A new cardiac steroid named elaeodendrogenin and two new cardiac glycosides named elaeodendroside B and C having an unusual sugar linkage were isolated from seeds of Elaeodendron glaucum Pers. The structure of elaeodendrogenin was elucidated to be Ia on the basis of chemical and spectral data. A newly developed procedure for cleavage of a glycoside having a doubly linked sugar was applied to characterization of elaeodendroside B and C. In consequence, the probable structures of these two stereoisomers were deduced to be VI.
